Anthony AmoreThe World of International Art Crime

Tuesday, September 24, 2013 at 7:00 pm

Protecting cultural property is a never-ending job for any art museum. Despite advanced security technologies, thieves are still able to slip past security and steal precious and highly valuable pieces. We’re accustomed to hearing stories about bank and jewelry store robberies, but we are often shocked when an art museum is the target of a successful heist.

Hear the details about the world’s most significant art crimes, including the 1990 Gardner Museum heist, from art crime expert and author of Stealing Rembrandts, Anthony Amore, Director of Security, Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum.
